I too have to admit to being a seedaholic, I have them stored in lots of odd places around the house. My kids roll their eyes when they come round for dinner and find a section of my cutlery draw partitioned for seeds, mind you, they dont mind taking away the excess plants for their gardens once I have lovingly nurtered them!


I would be more than happy to donate some seeds for those unfortunate peoples whos gardens have been flooded.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

I bought a Wilko heated propogator for £14 and put some chilli seeds in, they have all germinated and are now in my spare bedroom doing well. I dont have a greenhouse at the moment but my daughter has one which we have prepared at the weekend ready to transfer the seedlings when they are a bit bigger (will be heated).

I think I agree with you Crissy the gardener, its been outside till now and weve had a few frosts and icy evenings and it doesnt appear to be affected so I have just moved it to a more sheltered spot and will keep an eye on it.

Artjak...Im also glad its not a Datura or it would have had to go or be fenced in to stop little fingers getting to it. Ive looked it up now and am going to try to take some cuttings when the time is right. Its a lovely plant for some winter colour.

If you dont mind needles, acupuncture may work, I am half way through 6 weeks of sessions for trapped nerve in my back and I can now honestly say it has made my life so much better and reduced the pain levels significantly.

Stacey, I will definately be interested next time the seed swop comes round, I did collect some seeds from my garden this year but will be collecting lots next year.

Joined this site to try and identify a plant I have, after weeks of searching, a helpful member told me the name of my plant and after reading the above I have just watched two episodes, have lots of ideas for converting an old grassed area in my garden in the spring and really liked the seed swopping idea.

I will be logging on daily now
